(Reuters) – The New York Stock Exchange will allow a limited number of market makers to return to its trading floor on Wednesday, a spokesperson said, nearly three months after closing it due to the coronavirus pandemic.

More designated market makers, who oversee trading in the exchange’s 2,200 listed companies, will be permitted to come back this week, adding to the 25% of participants who returned when the trading floor partially reopened on May 26.

Bloomberg News first reported on this development.

Intercontinental-owned (ICE.N) NYSE closed its floor in March and had moved to electronic trading for the first time in its 228-year history, after one of its employees and a trader tested positive for COVID-19.
